Sony’s London Studio Is Making an Online PS5 Exclusive

Sony’s London Studio is recruiting new talent in order to develop its next game, which it says will be an online PlayStation 5 exclusive.

According to a number of recent job posts advertised by Sony’s London Studio – which most recently released VR exclusive Blood & Truth – the company is looking to put together a fresh new team in order to create an online PlayStation 5 game.

“We’re building a team from the ground up for an upcoming PlayStation 5 online game,” reads a statement from the studio’s Twitter account. “New starters will join at the perfect time to get involved in shaping our plans for a project we are exceptionally excited about!”

At present, the studio has kept details of the project closely under wraps though did note in a separate tweet that it “can’t wait to show the world” what it’s got in store. As part of an advertisement for the position of senior character artist on the team, the developer states that an ideal candidate will help the studio “in crafting a wide range of characters, skins, creatures, weapons, and gear.” However, considering that description could be applied to a plethora of modern games, it offers little in the way of solid information.

Despite not specifying further details surrounding gameplay, the post for the role does offer a number of further clues as to the scope of the game. Elsewhere in the description, it’s stated that the position offers a “once in a lifetime opportunity to be at the heart of crafting and bringing to life the next PlayStation icon/s” and that the successful candidate will be handling a range of AAA art content.

Sony London’s previous projects have included PlayStation VR Worlds and Blood & Truth, two games that were developed for the PlayStation 4’s virtual reality headset. While many fans might have expected Sony London to continue its journey with work on Sony’s upcoming PSVR 2, this new project may well not be developed with that in mind. Among the studio’s many new job adverts, there’s no mention of VR elements in any of them.

While Sony London continues to recruit for its next big project, recent reports have suggested that Firesprite – another of Sony’s UK-based studios known for developing VR games – is also turning its head away from the virtual reality scene too. Following reports that developer Lucid Games is no longer working on Sony’s rumoured reboot of Twisted Metal, it has been suggested that development of the car combat series will be undertaken by the Liverpool-based studio.
